Dell Inspiron Fan Speed
I have a Dell Inspiron 9300, w/ a 1.6 Ghz Intel Centrino with SpeedStep enabled, running Kubuntu Edgy (with all the latest updates). I just updated my BIOS from A02 to A05 and whenever my CPU fan kicks on, it stays on full tilt until I reboot, regardless of the CPU temperature (which is, at this very moment, at 36 degrees C and still the fan is running on high). I had also just tested Fiesty on my system and had thought maybe it was Fiesty that was causing the fan speed problem, but even after I reverted back to Edgy, the problem continues... so, it must have been the BIOS flash that did it. Does anyone know...
A) A link to Dell Bios A02 so I may revert back, or
B) A way to control the fan speed
